My conscience?  I wrote that with my tongue in my cheek, but apparently it hit a nerve. I hate arguments or any other type of conflict, but why would I feel guilty about not tipping a convenient store clerk?  I'd feel lousy if I didn't help the needy or wasn't kind to animals, but the only thing I'm scratching now is my head wondering how you can possibly write this comment. I know - it's a medical phenomenon I was reading about called N.S.A.A. (no shame at all)

justx - i like that N.S.A.A. - i was thinking of adding N.B.A.A.

love to nibble those micey feet.

    Hindsight is always 20 / 20 but the moral of the story here certainly appears to be CHECK YOUR TICKETS YOURSELF. 

    Whether it be via the results feature here, your state's lottery site, or even the newspaper, you check them. 

    If you're looking at standing to win a few hundred thousand, springing for 75 cents for the USA Today or 50 cents for your local paper may not be a bad idea.

    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

    There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
